Advice

Underwhelmed

Q and a in a high school in Amsterdam. A charming and well spoken young man said: "Mr. Grunberg, I need your advice."
Ah, he wants to be an author I thought.
But he said: "I'd like to a diplomat. Do you I can pull this off?"
"Yes," I said. "You can do this."
Then he said: "To be honest, I'm underwhelmed by your work. I haven't read your novels, but your columns..." He shook his head.
